Thank you to our landscaping volunteers! The Church Council wishes to thank all the amazing volunteers that worked so hard to prepare our grounds for some new landscaping. A few dedicated folks devoted many long, hot, dirty hours to beautifying our community. Your dedication inspires us and glorifies the Lord.
Waterfest: Good Shepherd will be participating in Waterfest on August 12th at the Leach Amphitheater. We are still looking for a few more volunteers to sign up for either one or two shifts. There will be a sign-up sheet in the church atrium. Please wear your Good Shepherd T-shirt and close-toed shoes. Contact Krista if you need a T-shirt.
